July 17, 2015 - one year since the murder of Eric Garner. One year since we watched the cops choke him to death! One year since we heard his dying words: “I can’t breathe” - words that the cops ignored. And still no justice! This murder, and how the whole system went into motion to exonerate Eric Garner’s killer, concentrate the slow genocide this system continues to enforce on Black and Latino people. As we observe the anniversary of the murder of Eric Garner, we are confronted with a genocide that is speeding up, and getting even more blatant and ugly - whether from white supremacist murderers waving Confederate flags, or killer cops wearing American flags. To observe the one-year since Eric’s last breath, we need to get back out into the streets. We must let everyone know that we have not forgotten; that we have not moved on; that we refuse still to suffer these horrors in silence; and that “healing” cannot happen until the gaping wound of white supremacy is closed and no longer bleeding out. We call on every organization, and every person, who stands against this genocide against Black and Brown people, to come together on July 17th, in the memory of Eric Garner and the 1000’s of other Stolen Lives, and re-dedicate and declare our determination to end police murder once and for all. And we invite all to join us in building toward #RiseUpOctober 22-24, culminating with tens of thousands of people from all over the country, shutting down the streets of New York City on October 24th.
